Alexis “Lexie” Stone has finally gotten what she wants, sort of, she is an operative.  Too bad her first assignment has her spying on the man she has long admired, Alex Stone (no relation), for IA.  Alex is a wizard operative that they are worried might be going rogue.  So while she is more than just a little attracted to Alex, Lexi will do what she needs to do, and by the book.

 

Alex is stunned that they let the woman out of research, though she appears to be a walking encyclopedia she also makes his pulse race, and all his blood head south.  Add to this his powers suddenly seeming to be unreliable and Alex knows this emergency mission is going to be a lot more than expected.

 

Now suddenly Lexi and Alex are in a race against time against an unknown assailant. There is a super serial killer who has already killed thousands, and they seem to be a few steps behind the entire way.  Someone seems to be rewriting the terrorism book and it will be up to T-Flac and the Wizard Council to stop them with Alex and Lexi leading the charge.

 

The more they work together the more that Lexi and Alex grow to care for each other.  While Lexi knows it is love, will Alex ever admit it.

 

Night Shadow is the third of the Night Series stories and the first one I picked up.  It is easily a stand alone book, but will make you want to go back and read about Luke and Sabastian, “sigh so many books so little time”.  But, do not let that stop you from picking up this action packed intrigue packed story.  You will travel from continent to continent trying to unravel the mystery of who is behind some horrific killings.  All the while you will get to see the interaction between Lexi and Alex Stone, who may share a name but their only relation at the start of the story is that of surprise partners in T-Flac’s latest operation.   I don’t want to give up too much of the plot so all I will say is that I was stunned at how Ms. Adair tied some plot lines together that I never suspected were related, and I can’t express how much I enjoyed Night Shadow.  I can’t give Night Shadow a higher rating than Joyfully Reviewed, so this is what it gets.

Instead of jumping off the magnificent Angel Falls in Venezuela, wealthy adrenaline junkies Zakary and Gideon Stark end up running for their lives in the jungle, but they’re not alone.

Acadia Gray is living on the wild side for the first time in her life. Her one-night stand with Zak rocks her world, but then it almost kills her when she, Zak, and Gideon are kidnapped. Acadia got more than she bargained for that night, and now her heart and her life are on the line.

Hush is high-energy from start to finish. Excitement and danger fill every page. Acadia is tough and feisty but also shy and sweet. She doesn’t show many people who she really is. Zak has been burned, and that failed relationship left a scar that runs deep. Acadia is the perfect match for Zak, it just takes him a while to see it for himself. If it’s possible to make their story more exciting, Zak’s newly acquired sixth sense does it. Twists and turns and steamy sensual undertones make Hush a hard book put down.

Cybercrimes superstar Honey Winston isn’t known for her social skills. In all honesty she prefers her computers to people. Unfortunately, someone is waging war on financial institutions and she is the only one that stands a chance of catching the villain’s cyber trail. Now she’s paired with T-Flac’s Mr. Irresistible. He may be on every woman’s “to bed” list but Honey plans on leaving him in the cold.

Rafael Navarro will never let another woman into his heart and allow his job to put her in danger. He is perfectly fine bed hopping. This is why his intense attraction to Icy Honey Winston shocks him. He needs her to do his job. Once they solve this case they can both go their separate directions.

Fate has different plans. The more they are forced to work together the more difficult it becomes to deny the attraction between them. But will they live long enough to act on it?

Cherry Adair continues her successful T-Flac series with Ice Cold. Ice Cold is blistering with red-hot passion and a sensational plot. Honey and Rafael make one hell of a team on the job and off it. I love the way they meet…well, minus the dead body. They have this killer fight. Ms. Adair does an excellent job of making her reader visualize the story. While the suspense plot takes up a good portion of the story the romance between Honey and Rafael definitely sizzles.

An old foe shows up so, for those of you who haven’t followed the series this may be a little confusing but it doesn’t take long to catch up. I believe Ice Cold can be read as a stand-alone and be enjoyed immensely. Let’s face it no one does action adventure quite like Ms. Adair.

Zane Cutter, the youngest brother of the Cutter clan, has finally hit pay dirt. His family has made a name for themselves in the salvage business. Every year he and his brothers bet on who will find the greatest treasure under the sea. This year is going to be his year. Zane found the wreckage of a Dutch ship. Unfortunately, as he’s getting ready to sail his mechanic is diagnosed with cancer, but there is an alternative.

Teal is the daughter of Zane’s mechanic and she just happens to have followed in her father’s footsteps becoming a fantastic mechanic herself. Teal is excited about the offer to become an engine mechanic for the Cutters until she learns its Zane’s boat she will be working on at sea. After a one night stand over a year ago that ended with her doing the walk of shame, the last person Teal ever wants to see again is Zane Cutter. However, after a huge guilt trip she agrees for one month only.

Zane may have a reputation as God’s gift to women but as much as he tries he can’t seem to get Teal to let him in. The more he’s around the sassy mechanic the more he wants her. Teal has had a thing for Zane since she was a kid but after their night together she wants nothing to do with him—at least that’s what she tells herself. A woman can only evade a man like Zane for so long on a ship.

Zane’s not the only one searching for treasure. The thought of riches brings out all kinds of characters eager to take their part of the treasure even if they have to hurt people to do it. Can Zane and Teal put their differences aside to find out who is sabotaging their treasure hunt before it’s too late?

Undertow is packed with sabotage, thievery, treasure, spies, a sexy heroine who is good with her hands and a handsome hero ready to fight for his woman. Undertow is one super exciting story. Cherry Adair spins an incredible story. It takes place largely on a ship at sea. The imagery is amazing. I felt like I was there with Zane and Teal. The underwater scenes are sensational. I was white-knuckling my ereader during those action filled scenes.

Teal and Zane are two incredible multi-layered characters. Teal is struggling with a lot of issues not just with Zane and their night together. I felt compassion for her and wanted her to find happiness with Zane more than anything. Zane comes off as a happy go lucky guy without a problem in the world everything just rolls off him, but he is also dealing with personal issues. Undertow uncovers the issues that lie between Zane and Teal and sheds light on their possible path to happiness if they are willing to take the chance. Whether it’s with their feisty banter or sensual seduction when these two are in a scene together they set it on fire. Undertow is a one of a kind high-stakes adventure that will have you gasping for air with its suspenseful scenes and begging for more of the Cutter brothers.

BLACK MAGIC by Cherry AdairBlack Magic by Cherry Adair

Geologist and Aequitas warrior Jackson Slater has used magic all his life.  Sara Temple rejected and began to fear her magical powers the night of her parents’ deaths.  Once deeply in love, now bitter exes, Jack and Sara want nothing more than to never see one another again.  But when an ancient evil threatens not just wizards, but the entire world, the Wizard Council throws Jack and Sara back into each others’ lives by commanding they work together to stop it.  Past wounds threaten to derail their investigation, but Sara and Jack learn that their love has never really died.  Can they heal the wounds of their past to have a future together?  Or will the evil they face destroy Jack, Sara, and everything they love before they have a chance to find out?

 

The classic tale of good versus evil gets an inventive new spin in the dark and dangerous Black Magic.  Having never read any of Cherry Adair’s books, I was excited to adventure into the world of Aequitas and Omnivatics and Ms. Adair doesn’t hold back from making her bad guys very bad indeed.  As for our protagonists, I adored Jack.  He’s sexy as hell and just a touch grouchy, which actually managed to add to his appeal (bravo, Ms. Adair).  I quite liked Sara as well, though at times I admit I wanted to shake her for not being willing to listen to Jack when it came to people who were obviously untrustworthy.  Though Ms. Adair tried to explain why said people had Sara’s trust, it was a matter of tell more than show, so that part of the story made me a bit unsympathetic towards Sara.  Still, when the good kind of sparks flew between Sara and Jack, I loved watching them together.  They suffered some awful hits in the past and I wanted to see them get their happily ever after together because Ms. Adair made me believe they definitely deserved it.  Black Magic is by turns sensual, thrilling, and (when it comes to the bad guys) just a bit creepy, which made the book all the more interesting.  Black Magic was an altogether engaging read and I look forward to reading more of Ms. Adair’s work.
